is like barack obama and mitt romney -- >> that's right. in yonkers, new york, the worst. >> hardest this year and you were talking about it is breaking through and your ad that broke through virally -- >> yes. >> big bird. >> without any money behind it. >> you never spent -- never aired on actual television. >> it did. it was part of our rotation. just out of there in earned media, 5 million people went to look at it. >> here's the most viral ad of 2012. >> together, we can do this. we can take this country back. ♪ i am america ♪ one voice united we stand ♪ i am america >> there it is! does it get any better? >> it was a great ad and same time -- >> it was -- >> no desire whatsoever to be president. >> no path. >> it was like this is fascinating if you're not trying to be a serious presidential candidate. >> or just have fun. >> it's not just smoking. i'm anti-staff staffer. i think we have to -- >> you won't get -- >> no tv ads for any candidates i have worked for. >> gosh. >> holding him to that. >> advice for other staffers. >> all right. gaggle sticking with us. we have d
obama only new jeremiah right through sitting in a pew in his church and listening to his sermons. in fact barack obama and jeremiah right had a one on one relationship in which they met for hundreds of times in the reverend wright's -- at every step of obama's career he went to the reverend wright for advice, counsel, political direction. this was a relationship that was closer than any relationship in his life with the possible exception of his relationship with his own wife, michele obama. >> host: does he have any contact with the president? >> guest: no. there is no contract. after obama won the presidency the reverend wright told me that he sent him a note congratulating him on achieving his ambition as he put it and that he didn't expect the note to get him directly so he gave it to a neighbor of obama's to the reverend wright knew to hand delivered. doesn't know to this day whether it was never delivered. >> host: who is steve rogers who you interview here? >> guest: steve rogers from chicago is a professor at the kellogg school of management at northwestern university. >>
are saying about the party politics -- the partisan politics. maybe obama sabina example right now and make a little compromise. -- maybe obama should lead by example right now and have compromised. what about a 10% flat tax? when not make everybody happy and flat tax everything? host: back to the telephones. caller: yes, they do not talk about the things -- you talk about taxes. what about taxing us on our wages? the supreme court voted against that. they do that -- in know, the poor people are getting poorer. the middle class is cut out. are either rich or you are poor. there is no middle class anymore. host: and that the wall street journal, their front page -- back to the telethons, panama city on the line for republicans. go ahead. caller: yes, good morning. i just wanted to say, we should be able to vote to congress out on no-confidence. we should have been no confidence bill to get them all out. >host: do you think that would work? caller: it would be better than what we have now. look at what it costs us per day. we are in a gridlock. it is causing tax payers millions of dollars. le
on the far right, the idea that mitch mcconnell would make a deal with obama could be acceptable. you have 10 or more republican senators who say they are willing to do business with president obama in terms of approving an increase in the marginal tax rates. if that is the case, if you could get them to pass some kind of bill and then send it on to the house, and all boehner said was i will allow a vote, and you have democrats and some republicans feeling pressure joining in, you could get a bill done. host: rick is from massachusetts on our independent line. caller: good morning. i have a problem with the president. he is the most divisive individual who has come to power in this country for a long time. he completely denied his white relatives and blames all the problems on white men by buying the votes of the lower earners in this country by saying it is not your fault. he promised to bring this country to gather. what happened? guest: i am surprised. upper income people voted for president obama. what is clear and true is if you look at white men, white men are overwhelmingly the single
and requests what a lot of liberal democrats are feeling right now. what jonathan wrote why is obama caving on tacks? the discouraging thing about the fiscal cliff negotiations is not that they have gone into the eleventh hour. it's that president obama has retreated on his hard line on taxes. obama may think his conciliatory approach has helped avoid economic chaos. instead, he is courting it." i want to go right to jimmy williams because you have been a senate staffer. you understand how this thing works. why would the white house even bother to increase from 250,000 to 400,000. they don't really have to. they're winning this fives fight. >> the only people that actually care whether or not the threshold is 250,000 to 400,000 are these people that are going to vote on it. nobody else really cares. all they really care is that you get a deal. these people are sitting at ground zero. these snores, these liberals. i'm a liberal. i don't care what the thereby hold is. i don't give a damn if it's a million. i just want them to get a deal or go over the cliff, but somebody just make up your min

zone, and the factor begins right now. >> laura: hi everyone i i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. back-to-work. that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. yesterday the obama administration announced that the president would cut short his hawaiian holiday to make one more attempt to work out a deal to overt the so-called fiscal cliff. in unison, his pals in the news media repeated this white house talking point. >> president obama cutting short his vacation in hawaii, heading back now to washington. that will happen tonight to work on the fiscal cliff deal. >> the looming fiscal cliff is forcing president obama to cut short his christmas vacation. >> president obama is cutting short his christmas vacation. he is leaving hawaii tonight so that he can be back in washington when congress reconvenes tomorrow. >> laura: so we should believe that by leaving his island enclave that the president was making some big sacrifice for the country? i'm thinking washington, crossing the delaware on a bitter christmas night 1776 before going
: yes, that's right. she had two children by barack obama senior. she stayed the whole time. she is still very much a part of nairobi in the community and runs a kindergarten there and has done so for several years. >> host: in 1964 to 1973, they were married. how long had she known him before she quit school? >> guest: she didn't quit, like, but she was teaching at that point. it was one of those very quick things, a couple of months, but she didn't know. and she said the reason he left cambridge is because he was kicked out. the harvard people have had enough of him with the drinking and the women. so they have been following very closely. i want to go back to one little thing. just because this is so troubling to me in any historian. there are documents that show barack obama senior in honolulu. there's no way he could have gone anywhere else and had that baby. he was in honolulu. anyway, so he was kicked out of harvard and went back to nairobi. so he went back. he called himself doctor from then on. he never got his phd. but she found him a few months later. found him in nair
may end up compromising? >> well, the level at which taxes will rise above where they are right now, so obama's insistence has been, if you make over $250,000 a year, on the income over 250 you pay a little more in the new rates he's proposing. now, he's been willing -- it's been reported that he's gone as high as 400,000 in the negotiations with boehner. so that's a place for agreement. the other place is the estate tax. the estate tax is scheduled to rise by quite a bit at the stroke of midnight tomorrow night. republicans want to keep it low, democrats want it to go up a little bit. there's room for compromise there. and so, you know, it's not just marginal rates that are going up, there's a series of taxes that they're going to change. the thing that could not be settled today was this change cpi. essentially a benefit cut for social security recipients. that led to a breakdown in negotiations today, because republicans wanted those benefit cuts to social security. and democrats said no way. and that was the sticking point and that's when this thing moved from the senate over to

'll even slip in something about 2015 just for kicks. let's get right to my first brief. how did president obama weighed down by a jobless rate higher than any incumbent seeking re-election since fdr win 323 electoral votes, sweep 8 of 9 battleground seats? as the republican party picks up the pieces and looks ahead to 2016, here are lessons hopefuls from both parties might want to keep mind. if you don't define yourself, your opponent will do it for you. romney let the president's early attacks on his personal wealth and business background go largely unanswered. romney's campaign argued after a long and expensive primary, they had to choose how to spend at the time, limited funds, and they had to claim it was better than defenses of his personal record. in the end, obama beat romney by ten points. on the economic values question that was this, which candidate is more in touch with people like you. 53% said romney's polauolicies d favor the rich. just 10% said that about the president's policies. and romney, the first republican nominee in the history of our poll to go into a convention w
is a compromise is rewarded by the public. and right now, whether it's president obama, whether it was speaker boehner, the two of them couldn't find a way to get to a deal because they didn't want to look like they were ever caving. and when you get to a point where it looks like you're caving on something, then there is negative political effects. now, that's why they've brought in vice president biden, mitch mcconnell, to try to close this thing. and they may close a deal, but there's no guarantee that even any deal they come to an agreement with tonight will actually make it tomorrow. >> and chuck, this congress has, your honor telling us, the lowest approval rating ever, the least productive. what happens when the next congress comes in later this week? >> reporter: well, the bad news is, if you view this as bad news, more of the same. because even if they get this temporary deal on taxes, temporarily buy down the automatic spending cuts, what they have set up is a series of mini fiscal cliffs, if you will, kate. so every three to six weeks, over the next six months, we could be going thr
. >> julia: what is her legacy? >> she fit right into the obama administration. she's anti-business . she led the charge against coal and oil on behalf of the president. president obama. >> kelly: why did she do that? >> she's anti-business. she's a big global warmer and wants to go after fossil fuels and coil and oil and she went after them. >> eric: some are saying she used the private e-mail with the alias to go after the coal industry. >> we don't know that. i don't know what was in the secret e-mail account. that is pure speculation. but you shouldn't have a secret e-mail account you are epa administrator. what are you hiding is the obvious question. what are you hiding? were you in fact going after coal and oil secretly? we don't know. >> julia: we don't know if it is personal business or on the work computer. >> that is entirely possible. >> eric: the courts will open up the e-mails. >> they should. >> kelly: we'll find out. >> we'll find out. she after the state of the union speech that takes place next month. >> kelly: i know emanuel cleaver chairman. black caucus said she would be m
much. all right. that was president barack obama speaking on what he says is an insight deal on the fiscal cliff but not a final deal. a lot of cheering. felt like a campaign-ish rally. we're not just doing on the spending side anymore but clearly an obama optimistic about this deal. its chances and what it means for the white house. that does it for this edition of "andrea mitchell reports." happy new year, everyone. "news nation" is next. >>> hello there, i'm t.j. holmes. president obama speaking just moments ago and putting the pressure on. with just ten hours until the country goes over that fiscal cliff, the president announcing that agreement to prevent tax hikes for all americans is in sight. but there is no deal just yet. >> today it appears that an agreement to prevent this new year's tax
on the right and people say they support obama or don't like obama that would disagree and say that he's apologizing for america and he is pulling out before our allies can stand on the verdone and they say we shouldn't really send troops in to afghanistan in the first place. >> petraeus ann gates and clinton, she had a tough group are not him but it was his own doing.

. whether that can be achieved is still very much up in the air. as of right now, president obama has gone back to his original demand that the bush era tax cuts be extended only for the first $250,000 in earnings. the white house is talking to senate democrats about what their proposal may look like. but as of yet, neither is in communication with congressional republicans. and as the white house hashes out details of the reid plan with senate democrats, it's at this moment unclear exactly what form it will take, what it will look like, other than to deal no doubt wheith tax cuts. details may not be released for a few days as they try to get republican support, yes, but also try to put pressure on speaker boehner by moving a vote in the senate closer to the new year. trying to say to house republicans and the speaker take up this bill that we may pass or take the blame for going over the fiscal cliff. joe. >> brianna keilar in hawaii there. there's a fight over what programs to keep funding when it comes to the fiscal cliff and it's not just between republicans and democrats. to explain t

on the right and people pro obama and don't like obama would disagree, would say he is apologizing for america, pulling out before our allies can stand on their own, and of course, the people who say that he shouldn't have sent troops in to afghanistan in the first place. >> he was boxed in. by petraeus and mcchrystal and gates and clinton. he had a tough group around him. his own doing. he criticized him for his advisers. he called his economic advisers a constellation of wall streetites. they're wall street people who brought in, so those policies were not surprising. the foreign policy team, robert gates had been up to his eye bawls in most of the bad things this country had done for decades. >> didn't he promise in his campaign in 2008 he would pull troops out of iraq and put more emphasis on afghanistan? >> yes. >> so he is following up.

glowan is with us, and mark hanna, a strategist and former aide to the john kerry and barack obama campaigns. thank you for joining us, look, here we are right now on friday, we heard the president following his meeting with congressional leaders at the white house. president obama told reporters that he was modestly optimistic that a deal could be reached. he's counting on the sen if we l cliff because john boehner, the speaker of the house of representatives wasn't able to get the republicans to get the republicans to support a plan b. >> here is the rub, may i go? here is the rub. >> please. >> boehner knows how to negotiate and took on bowles plan, simpson bowles, he took on part of their plan, his first proposal. his second proposal was nancy pelosi's proposal she offered in may of this year of doing tax cuts on people of one million dollars and above, that are one million and above. >> and now plan c now. >> now, now proposal-- >> for the republicans to get-- >> no, he was not and that's his failure dealing with his party, but as for negotiating, boehner has put forth many things. it's presid
as the dynamic that's going on right now? >> well, let's put it like this. after the election, and barack obama won re-election pretty handily, as it turned out, after the republicans threw everything they had at him, after mcconnell said his top priority, as barney frank mentioned a few moments ago was to make barack obama a one-term president, wasn't to fix the economy, it was to make barack obama a one-term president, obama took all of that, he won. there was a sense in washington, among some people, i guess, i would call them sort of naive people, that the republicans might have learned something from that and might come to the table. but i'm afraid that, chris, they've learned precisely the opposite, that they're just going to double down in their opposition and that's what we're seeing so far with the failure to have a resolution to these fiscal cliff negotiations. john boehner -- >> but mitch mcconnell did reach ute to the president. do you see that as posturing, we're doing our best, or do you think the republicans are serious and feeling pressure about making a deal? >> i don't think t
boehner plan, the president obama plan, let's start out with the do-nothing plan because that's the plan we0 have right now. the cbo estimates fiscal year 2013 deficit will be, well,lionf $104 trillion for fiscal year al 2013.well, it's so we get up to 2014, it is going to be about $19.4 billion -- excuse me, trillion dollars.f $20.3 trillion. we do nothing. amat is if we do nothing aboutpb this runaway spending. responsible government. let's take a look at what1.6 happens. way $1.64 trillion in taxes. $82 billion per year from the top 2%. senates the n same amount of net tax hikes in the president's 2013 budget that the senate rejected unanimously. byl the tax hikes that he is requesting, the national debt by it'll instead of 25.8%, that's where you get cut down. it will amount toll $25.4 trillion.that's we will call at obama wins. a r the national media waiting forii that one. that is what will be. it will be a really dramaticis s scene. i want to show you exactly how changes. speaker boehner wants, oh, yeah? he is going to kick some tail. we are going to get to point you leally in dol
again. but ultimately the way this is going to happen is because the american people say that's right. >> reporter: now remember president obama put vice president biden in charge of what's essentially a task force between different agencies and he has said he wants recommendations really right about now on exactly some recommendations for congress to move forward on. but we know that president obama has urged congress and will continue to do so in the new year to pass an assault weapons ban. to pass a ban on high capacity ammunition clips and to close the gun show loophole so all gun purchasers are suggest to background checks and he also wants to address the mental health issue. >> thank you. appreciate it. >>> if you were watching, the nfl playoffs are set. joe carter is here to tell us who is in and who is out. sunday was exciting. >> thank you. good morning. it was an emotional year, emotional day in indianapolis. head coach chuck pagano back on the sidelines. he's been out since september after being diagnosed with leukemia. arian foster tapping the chuck strong banner after sco
that's totally right, kimberly. in november we voted for obama's super size government. so what is the fiscal cliff? the fiscal cliff is the check. it's the tab after the buffet of all that spending. so the irony is everyone in the beltway thinks it's so terrible we are going over the fiscal cliff because it's so irresponsible. well, ironically it's the opposite. the whole point of the fiscal cliff is when the fiscal cliff is cleared and we jump over it, we are getting rid of all the accounting game mix, the temporary stings of things that allow congress to pretend it's being fiscally responsible when it's not. what's going to happen? a lot of taxes will go up but taxes will go up on everybody, not injure the guy around the tree that's paying for everything but everyone will have to pay. and then folks will realize the government we are voting for costs us money too. >> that's the thing. if we don't go over the cliff and they don't reach a compromise, what will happen? they can't afford to keep spending like this. won't spending have to go down by virtue after compromise not bei
on entitlement reform on spending cuts. >> well, that's right. president obama believed and the democrats believe they have a mandate after the election. now, a mandate, you know, depends what you call a mandate. the election was not really close, but it wasn't also a grand slam for the democrats either. so there's a real difference in who -- what the mandate is here. and democrats don't feel they need to compromise. i think they think if we go over the fiscal cliff, they will have even stronger negotiating power. that remains to be seen because oftentimes when taxes go up and there is something that hits the economy really hard and puts it into a tailspin, it's the president who takes the blame. so i think even the president is wondering who's going to foot the blame for this one. but at this point i think the democrats feel they have the upper hand at this moment. if they hold tight, they will force the republicans to capitulate. i don't see that happening. i think both sides are really going to have to give in before we get a final deal. jon: so we'll have to see, you know, which side wins the
the government, democrats and liberals, obama, or anybody who has the right to decide when another american is wealthy? in the constitution, it is said that we have the ability to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. all this bickering is restricting and punishing achievement. i make next to nothing because of my past. i did my time. i do not care what they do. personally, i hope nothing happens, because i know the game. right before the deadline hits, they will pass something. i have been watching this for enough years to see that they will pass it. it will pass something because they have to play this game. host: charles from maryland, thank you for the call. trawls brings up a rebel. he will be on meat -- "meet the press" this morning. the highlight will be president obama on nbc's "meet the press." on abc this morning, senator chuck schumer. along with jon kyl of arizona. on cbs, dick durbin and tom coburn, the republican from oklahoma. fox news this morning, on fox news sunday, senator lindsey graham, the republican from south carolina, on what senator dianne feinstein,
in the archives and will be available to the public after the end of the obama administration. >> what about the campaign video, that is private though, right? >> have to figure that out still. the dnc kept all the stuff in 2008 and give it back to the campaign when it reignited. now that the campaign is seemingly over the president you are finished the last campaign where the footage goes is interesting. i'm hoping it will be donated to the obama presidential library whenever that start to take form. . . >> harvard professor, randall kennedy nerd is selling book company and/or time of the strange career of a troublesome word. you write about violence by speech. what do you mean? >> guest: that book is about the word nigger and is a word that is triggered lots of violence and to some it is the final word in another cells. what i wanted to do in that book was to give a history of this word that has been covered with blood literally and sometimes figuratively and wanted to show the way in which this word has wrought havoc in american culture. of course that is not all it does. one of the reaso
to the house. there is a new headline in "new york" magazine. it reads this. why is obama caving on taxes? the article reads in part, the erosion signals not only a major substantive problem in its own right but also raises disturbing questions about obama's ability to handle his entire second-term agenda. do republicans sense a little weakness here, an opportunity? could the president's concession hurt his ability later on to negotiate with the gop? >> no. i think he is doing what needs to be done. unfortunately, this president hasn't operated or led this country like keith's former boss, president clinton, who understood the art of negotiation and actually getting there and rolling up his sleeves and having discussions well before everyone's back is against the wall. i can't believe i'm saying it but i am encouraged to see joe bide nen there and talking with mitch mcconnell. it is good to have the negotiations. they need to in her reference it's better to have them as fred as tear and ginger rogers dancing and discussing issues back and forth as opposed to what we have with thelma and l

director invoed in an extramarital affair cannot b overplayayed. >> all right. as we look back, let's begin with the top political story of the year -- the reelection of barack obama. as "timeme"'s magazine cover story stage -- the president is the person of the year -- barack obama will be the first dememocrat in more e than 75 years to win a majority of the popular vote twice. mitt romney has to be asking himself, given the magnitude of the president's problems and the great numbers of americans who believe the country was headed in the wrong dirirection "how did i lose?" the republican national convention, a vermont couple took the stage to describe how mitt romney had helped their termally ill son help settle his affairs. people listening werere in tears but their story never made it to the country. instead, the voters saw this. >> what do y you want me t tell romney? i cannot tell him to do that. [laughter] >> that is just a symptom of what went wrong in the mitt romney campaign, and yet as we observed here week after week, the president was vulnerable and so manlevels. the economic re
printing money right and left and hoping that somehow it is going to turn the economy around. obama promised that if we follow these policies, everything ought to be improving. >> hunky dory. i am not seeing it. looking uhed -- looking ahead to the new year, all of the printing of money, is that change ?g. >> printing of money did help. it did inflate the economy. the problem is that you had fiscal policy which is what the white house could control. it didn't really work. it worked horribly. we know that unemployment is going down because the labor force is shrinking. that's why it is going down. it is an unprecedented thing. the only thing left to do is monetary policy. you try to pump up the economy by printing more money. a lot of people criticize ben bernanke for that. it could sew the seeds of inflation where down the road the stuff will be way too expensive. it was the only game in town. if you believe bernanke, if he didn't do that, we may have gone into a double dip recession or something worse. >> let's talk about the fact that so many people who are heads of companies, cor
, but they are trying to carve out a deal capable of winning bipartisan support. president obama said the u.s. can't afford a self inflicted wound to our economy. >> fortunate lie congress can prevent it from happening if they act right now. i had a good and constructive discussion with senate and house leadership about preventing the tax hike on the middle class and we should be able to reach an agreement to pass both house necessary time. >> senate leaders can't strike a deal. it would be a plan c. keeping tax cuts for those making $250,000 or less . extending unemployment benefits and delay dramatic spending cuts until later next year. >> they realize it is it a critical time. >> we are engaged in discussion majority leader and myself and the white house in the hopes we can come forward sunday and have a recommendation that i can make to my conference and the majority leader can make and we'll be working hard to try to get there in the next 24 hours. >> sources say house spheeker bone bone deferred to the senate and house would consider or amend the plan and not expected to be included is the d

[applause] >> i am nominating former president bill clinton's democratic national convention speech in 2012 as the political speech of the year. anybody want to challenge me on that? >> i echo that. he galvanized that convention. he brought them to their feet. he galvanized the political party. they came out of there as a united party, and energize the party. >> and he has a huge approval rating. this was a man who was impeached. >> there is a second and third life in american politics, and bill clinton proves it. the two most popular political figures in the united states are bill clinton and hillary clinton. he made a better case for barack obama and joe biden and barack obama and joe biden had ever made. the other thing about bill clinton's speech is he had the ultimate line in it -- "this economy was so bad even i could not have fixed it." >> i think you pointed out in the opening of the show what was the worst political moment

. to maintain cost and come pettive market we have to pay attention to. president obama is beholden to unions. he's made a point of supporting them. >> look at how the unions built the stronger middle class and stronger america. >> day after that, michigan became the 24 state to pass right to worklaugh. the president option to reward unions are limited. >> we'll expect the leadership from president obama. >> more than 5700 new regulations posted in 90 days alone. >> way to do it from the union per speculative to raise the workers' pay around the world. >> laying the ground work to protect workers from detroit to juarez to shanghai to bogata. getting the government and multinational organizations to agree is another matter. >> bret: thank you. still ahead, the french soak the rich tax proposal hit a speed bump. law enforcement works on setting a legal limit for driving after smoking pot. this is america. we don't let frequent heartburn come between us and what we love. so if you're one of them people who gets heartburn and then treats day afr day... block the acid with prilosec otc and don't g
